The problem was never the FTDI chip not being detected, it was the module deciding to start talking garbage whenever it felt like it.Quote:
Doesn't this mean its being detected?
could you give me more detailed instructions?
Make sure you have libftdi-dev installed:
Then, grab obdgpslogger [probably from svn, if you can, since there's some small changes that went into ftdipty since the last release].Code:
sudo apt-get install libftdi-dev
Build and install using the same instructions as you find on that page. In short:
There's info about how to blacklist modules, here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=166624Code:
mkdir build; cd build
make && sudo make install
Blacklist ftdi_sio, rmmod it, unplug and replug the device. Then run "obdftdipty".
If all goes to plan, it will tell you that it created a pty, and give you the full path to it. Try using that instead of /dev/ttyUSB0
